LAFAYETTE - Lafayette city-parish department heads are being asked to comb their budgets for cuts as the administration prepares to trim at least $5 million from next year's budget.

City-Parish Chief Administrative Officer Dee Stanley says the administration is just beginning to prepare the proposed budget, but under a best-case scenario, $5 million in cuts will be needed to bring expenses in line with revenue.

Stanley said department heads have been asked to search out reductions because they should have a better handle on what can be sacrificed and what cannot within their own departments.

He said no specific cuts have been identified.
